Salmon Teriyaki

Posted January 29th, 2011 in Food 2 Comments »

My another salmon teriyaki recipe here.

A typical, yet delicious Japanese salmon dish : salmon with teriyaki-style sauce.  In Japan I normally use a fish-grill to grill salmon, but I don’t have it here in Perth so I cook it in the oven.  No need to worry about washing fish-smelling pan afterward and I could chill while the salmon is being cooked in the oven!

The word “teriyaki” means the method of cooking – which the food is brushed with sauce while being grilled.  I call this dish “salmon teriyaki” although there is no such cooking method involved.  It’s just easier for people (non-Japanese) to remember the name.  I can also call it “Salmon with Soy and Ginger Sauce”.  It’s actually more like it.

<Salmon with Soy and Ginger Sauce> serves 2

  • 2 salmon fillets (around 350g)
  • 3cm ginger
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 2 tbs mirin
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 cm ginger

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°.
  2. Halve the salmon fillets.
  3. Slice the 3cm ginger into matchstick shape.
  4. Spray alumifoil with oil, and line the salmon.  Sprinkle with salt, and top with the ginger.  Bake in the oven for 20~ 30 minutes until golden.
  5. For the sauce: Place soy sauce, mirin, sugar and ginger (sliced into matchstick shape) in a small sauce pan, and bring to the gentle boil to dissolve the sugar, stirling well.
  6. Serve with steamed rice.

    Hi Ume,

    I’ve moved to Perth for a week now and am having some difficulty finding a fresh meat and seafood market. I am used to having a wide selection of stalls at our market selling really fresh seafood, chicken and meat, but I have not been able to find a similar place here in Perth. I’m living in East Perth – could you advice on where I could go?

    Hi Jo,

    Welcome to Perth!! 😀

    Ummm… probably you can try out Market City in Canning Vale. It’s not really a stall/market though, looks like a tiny tiny shopping mall, but inside there’s a butcher where they can cut/slice/portion meat for you on request.
    You can check it out from here:

    To be honest, I have never seen any shop selling super fresh seafood in Perth 🙁 That’s is one of the reason I miss Japan!

    Have you tried some markets like Fremantle, Midland, Subiaco etc?
